IRS should reject it and send you a letter regarding this and asking for correct number.

If you do not get the letter and it approaches April 15th then print a new return with the correct SSN on it and mail it in by the due date.

But wait for the letter as if you file another return now, things might really get messed up.

You do however no matter what go back to TurboTax and Edit yourself in the Personal Information section and change it to the correct SSN.
